    I like the first ones you posted.

    Similar style to my new 18" Kato Sukumo in Gunmetal










    With regards to lowering...

    To give you an idea my car is also a 1.6 and is lowered with Eibach Pro-Kit springs on VXR dampers, the drop is 30-40mm both ends.

    What you think?

    I've wrapped the front chrome grille, wing mirror covers & rear chrome strip in Carbon Fibre vinyl, looks good I think.
